CONFIRM ???

Crashed near Sagree village on the bank of Indus River near an airbase west of the capital, Islamabad, southwestern province of Balochistan Base Commander Air Commodore Abdul Hameed Qadri ejected but killed. Martin-Baker
Police sources said that before the crash the pilot ejected himself from the plane but his parachute did not open and he fell on the ground and died. He had delayed ejecting to ensure that he was well away from a populated area when he left the aircraft.

 

On 17th May 1986 Air Commodore Abdul Hameed Qadri was on a routine western CAP over Parachinar near the Afghan border. Qadri and his wingman Sqn. Ldr. Mohammed Yousaf flying PAF F-16As intercepted four SU-22 aircraft. Quadri's missiles failed to launch yet he still managed to shoot two SU-22s with his guns. He was awarded the Sitara-i-Basalat.
